I suppose I should have learned from the last time but I tried to get ATI drivers (ie fglrx) again for my dell inspiron 1545 that has an ATI Radeon mobility HD4330 card. I know now that this card does not have proprietary drivers updated for it...so no 3D apps for me.
Anyhow, I have installed fglrx in the past and rendered Ubuntu 13.04 unusable. I fixed by running another install over the existing installation (ie. no format) in the "something else" option. That did the trick.
Well, I tried installing ATI Catalyst drivers again and things went sideways again. This after updating to 13.10 a couple of weeks earlier. I can't load into ubuntu and after another attempt at reinstalling I now get this lovely message which I can't fix with re-installing:
run-int: /sbin/init : Exec format error [ 3.590338] kernel panic - not syncing : Attempted to kill init! exitcode= 0x0000010 [ 3.590338]
I've done a lot of searching and can't seem to find any one fix that helps me...(and I'm a little concerened that I've monkeyed with things more than I should...haha!)
Bottom line: I can't get past this kernel panic notice to fix things....any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
